Synopsis

Our heroes, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, allied with Captain Barbossa are in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones' locker. With the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman, and its commander Davy Jones under the control of the East India Trading Company, there is havoc on the Seven Seas. Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, the heroic trio must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Pirate Sao Feng. Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final titanic battle -- as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way hangs in the balance.

Budget Note

There is considerable debate about the actual budget of World's End. Original studio sources put the budget at $150 million during production, but that cost is believed to be based on amortizing costs over several projects, and the final shoot likely ran over its original budget. The $300 million figure has never, to our knowledge, been confirmed by Disney, but has been widely reported. We will continue to quote it, unless Disney provides an "official" number.
